Yesterday, I participated in a world wide phenomenon called ClickinWalk. It was sponsored by an online photography forum called Clickin Moms. All over the world, shutter sisters have been getting together and wandering the streets of their towns, snapping pictures like it's Suri Cruise strung out on cotton candy. We looked like a gang of paparazzi.
This was my first photowalk ever. I just have to tell you a secret though. You know, when men get those ridiculously raised trucks with the massive tires on it, or the men who wear super big belt buckles-people say those are their penis extensions?!? Well, I have to admit I have a rather vulgar nickname for my camera. I call it my Vagina Extension! I realized yesterday, compared to these other women, my VE is small I had serious camera envy and had a hard time grasping what these other Shutter Sisters were seeing. Here's my best shot from the day. I'm so sorry if I've offended anyone with this embarrassing confession.
Here are a few others from the day as well.

Trying to get back into shooting every day. Broke my wrist six weeks ago, so all photography was pretty much put on hold. Cast is off, but the wrist is still pretty stiff. I have missed taking pictures, but also welcomed the break to re-evaluate my skills and study. I belong to a couple of groups of awesome ladies thru Clickin Moms. I've watched the progress they have made by shooting daily and it is UNBELIEVABLE. I feel so behind, but I'm encouraged by seeing the growth each of these ladies has achieved and so I'm motivated to get there too.
